Dry Needling

I just finished up with a fantastic dry needling weekend course with master dry needling seminars  which really helped to expand my skill set in dry needling and improve my confidence in targeting some deeper muscles. What is dry needling you ask? Dry needling uses a thin filiform needle to stimulate and myofascial trigger points, muscular and connective tissues for pain relief and improvements in strength and range of motion. A variety of musculoskeletal issues can be addressed including but not limited to low back pain, piriformis syndrome, knee pain, migraines, carpal tunnel, and knee pain. It is NOT acupuncture since the primary focus is trigger points and NOT meridian lines.

As an added bonus to learning great information, I had physical improvements myself. My left hamstring improved by about 30 degrees; however, I failed to take before and after pics. I did take pictures of my hip flexibility before and after and there was significant improvement and it was so much more comfortable sitting in the figure 4 position after the course was finished.
